Sony releases statement against piracy

Today Sony has released a statement that warns ps3 users that are using pirated games in their consoles:


"Notice: Unauthorized circumvention devices for the PlayStation 3 system have been recently released by hackers. These devices permit the use of unauthorized or pirated software. Use of such devices or software violates the terms of the “System Software License Agreement for the PlayStation 3 System” and the “Terms of Services and User Agreement” for the PlayStation Network/Qriocity and its Community Code of Conduct provisions. Violation of the System Software Licence Agreement for the PlayStation 3 System invalidates the consumer guarantee for that system. In addition, copying or playing pirated software is a violation of International Copyright Laws. Consumers using circumvention devices or running unauthorized or pirated software will have access to the PlayStation Network and access to Qriocity services through PlayStation 3 system terminated permanently.


To avoid this, consumers must immediately cease use and remove all circumvention devices and delete all unauthorized or pirated software from their PlayStation 3 systems. "


This statement is following reports that pirates have once again gained access to online gameplay through dns hacking methods and in our opinion is designed to pay due dilligence and warn anybody that is playing pirated games before the actual banning starts. We would not be surprised if in the next couple of weeks we start getting reports of people getting kicked out of the PSN all over PS3 forums.


Now hackers have a decision to make, it looks like Sony is taking an upperhand in the fight against piracy and will do whatever is necessary to protect their gaming community as well as the developers that are working hard to create new and exciting titles. We will just have to wait and see how this plays out. Please feel free to let us know your opinion below
